  • The “Gross and Effective Drainage Area Boundaries of the AAFC Watersheds Project - 2013” dataset is a geospatial data layer containing line features representing boundaries associated with the ‘incremental gross drainage areas’ of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Watersheds Project. The project is subdivided by hydrometric gauging station. The maximum area that could contribute runoff to each station, less that of its upstream neighbour(s) is called its ‘incremental gross drainage area’. Two types of boundary are provided: ‘gross’ and ‘effective’. ‘Gross’ boundaries separate adjacent incremental gross drainage areas. ‘Effective’ boundaries delimit, within each incremental gross drainage area, the separation between areas that supply runoff, based on average runoff, from those that don’t.

  • The “Non-contributing Portions of the Incremental Gross Drainage Areas of the AAFC Watersheds Project – 2013” dataset is a geospatial data layer containing polygon features representing the areas within each incremental gross drainage area of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Watersheds Project that DO NOT contribute to average runoff. The Project is subdivided by hydrometric gauging station. The maximum area that could contribute runoff to each gauging station, less that of its upstream neighbour(s) is called an “incremental gross drainage area”. The “incremental gross drainage” areas can be subdivided into portions that either supply surface runoff to an average runoff, or do not. Those portions that are NOT part of the effective drainage area are called ‘non-contributing'.

  • Water composition is defined by measuring the amounts of its various constituents; these are often expressed as milligrams of substance per litre of water (mg/L). Sampling methods vary according to the types of analysis. Dataset point: The dataset represents a general description of the sample, including name, ID, type of analysis and lab. It includes numbers describing the results of the analysis and physical properties of groundwater. Time series: The dataset represents a general description of the sample, including name, ID, type of analysis and lab. It includes series of numbers describing the results of the analysis and physical properties of groundwater with associated date. Dynamic values over time at the same sites provides temporal variation data of groundwater composition.

  • Current year record of river ice roughness as monitored on selected rivers by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) using satellite imagery for the mitigation of ice jam associated risks. In order to mitigate ice jam induced floods risks, Natural Resources Canada emergency geomatics service (EGS) may be activated by Canada’s emergency management authorities. As new satellite imagery becomes available, NRCan will produce river ice roughness maps and update the dataset in near real time (4 hours). This item contains record of the river ice roughness products generated in the current year. For the complete archive, please refer to the [River Ice in Canada - Archive](https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/5e6b40bf-299f-4e05-87c8-d10b9c8210f9) entry. The river ice product is generated and validated on a best effort basis. Various factors may affect the quality of the river ice roughness maps. Those factors include but are not limited to: environmental condition at the time of acquisition, image resolution or the limitations of the methodology used. To view a specific product, filter the data by date (UTC Date) and area of interest (AOI). Links to download specific image from the FTP site of EGS are available in the Resources section. Disclaimer: Emergency response authorities are the primary users of these satellite-derived river ice roughness map products. These products are generated to provide analysis and emergency response situational awareness and to facilitate decision-making during major flood events. The river ice roughness products are generated rapidly and limited time is available for editing and validation. The river ice roughness products reflect the river ice surface roughness conditions at the date/time of acquisition. While efforts are made to produce high quality products, near-real time products may contain errors due to the limited time available for validation and the limited availability of ground thruthing data.

  • Zones that represent areas of homogeneous hydrologic and geomorphological characteristics

  • Index outlining historical floodplain mapping areas. Contains links to Floodplain Mapping Reports stored in Ecological Reports Catalogue (EcoCat)

  • Hydrographic Annotation based on the 1:50,000 scale Canadian National Topographic Series of Maps.

  • The names of these rivers in the Bay of Fundy and Port Hawkesbury Area Response Plan (ARP) regions were obtained from Recovery Potential Assessments (see references), and cross referenced with the Atlas of Canada hosted online by Natural Resources Canada. These rivers were then identified and marked in ArcGIS using the Nova Scotia and New Brunswick Hydrographic Networks. Point features were used to represent the river mouths. For rivers large enough to be represented by polygon features, the point was placed where the polygon closed the inlet. For smaller rivers represented by a polyline, the point was placed where the line intersected the coastline. When multiple tributaries of a river were identified as salmon rivers, only the most seaward was marked.

  • Flood extent polygons representing current year floods throughout Canada as monitored by Natural Resources Canada using satellite imagery for emergency response. In response to large flood events, Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), for the provision of emergency geomatics services, may be activated by Canada’s emergency management protocols. As new satellite imagery becomes available, NRCan will extract flood extent polygons and update the dataset in near real time (4 hours). This item contains the flood products generated in the past year. For any data relating to previous years, please refer to the [Floods in Canada – Archive]( https://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/74144824-206e-4cea-9fb9-72925a128189) entry. Please note that the web mapping service may not display data if flood polygons have not been published by the EGS for the current year. The flood products generated are validated on a best effort basis. Various factors may affect the quality of the flood polygons. These factors include, but are not limited to, sensor type, image resolution, cloud cover or limitations of the flood polygon extraction method. In this layer, where possible, a symbology is applied to the flood polygons based on the underlying land use classification, or is simply unclassified and shows the raw flood extent. When using Web mapping services, to display a specific product, filter by date (UTC Date) and area of interest (AOI). Also, a link to download each product directly from the FTP site is available in the Resources section. This prepackaged and compressed product contains a Shape file, a PDF file and a KMZ file. Disclaimer : Emergency response authorities are the primary users of these satellite-derived open water flood extent map products. These products are generated to provide analysis and emergency response situational awareness and to facilitate decision-making during major flood events. The open water flood extent products are generated rapidly and limited time is available for editing and validation. The flood products reflect the open water flood conditions at the date/time of acquisition. While efforts are made to produce high quality products, near-real time products may contain errors due to the limited time available for vector editing and validation. Please note that current algorithms do not map flooded areas under the forest canopy and are not optimized for urban flood mapping.
